BISHOP, Calif. — The Bureau of Land Management is currently accepting applications for the Fall Artist in Residence program at the Alabama Hills National Scenic Area near Lone Pine, California.

Selected artists will have the opportunity to speak with Park Rangers and be inspired by the many scenic areas within the Alabama Hills, located amongst the Sierra Nevada skyline.

The residency is available for a one-week period between Oct. 1 and Nov. 11, 2023.

During their stay, artists will share their vision in a 45-minute public presentation.

Following their residency, artists donate at least one digital image of their completed artwork to the Alabama Hills, representative of their stay. Housing or a stipend may be provided by partner organizations.

“The Artist in Residence program is a wonderful way to bring artists into our communities and inspire visitors to care for and protect public lands,” said Bishop Field Manager Sherri Lisius. “We are excited to continue this program this year and enhance opportunities for the community and Alabama Hills.”

This is the second year of the Alabama Hills National Scenic Area Artist in Residence program. The art from the first year of the program is on display at the BLM Bishop Field Office located at 351 Pacu Lane, suite 100, Bishop.

The Alabama Hills consists of rounded rocks and eroded hills set between the jagged peaks of the Sierra Nevada and Owens Valley. In March of 2019, Congress designated 18,745 acres of the Alabama Hills as a National Scenic Area.

The BLM encourages artists of all mediums to apply, including but not limited to painters, photographers, printmakers, illustrators and graphic artists; all will be given equal consideration.
